Quiet day

It was warm in the park, really not much activity, but pockets of interest here and there.
Hey, wait robin!

I wasn't sure what I was seeing till I saw the legs, bright yellow. A blackpoll warbler. I was told they migrate the longest distance of any migrating warbler, all the way down to Peru. This one was flirting with the camera often too close for pictures.

The thrasher stayed in this tree for a while. I couldn't figure out why till I saw it sip from a water collection in the tree joint.

Female towhee

Immature male common yellowthroat

Kinglets are here, but so far I've only seen them way up in the tree tops.
